    Hey Jaguar folks, or any folks really....

    I was wondering if I could get a little help on the pot and cap values for the Squier VM Jaguar Special. It's the passive one with VTVT setup. I had one a few years ago, but sold it to help finance a 5-er.

    I am working on a different bass that has 4-holes for pots, and is back-loaded, so no control plate. As-is, the tone knobs don’t really play that nicely together. I know that because it's passive, that's going to happen, but I'm trying to make it as nice as it can be without installing a preamp. I remember the tone controls on my VM Jag Special worked really well, and didn't seem to interfere with one another at all, even tho they were passive. Was hoping to duplicate that goodness with my current project.

    Does anyone know what are the pot values, taper, capacitors, etc that are involved on that passive VM Jag Special? I never opened mine up and looked when I had it.

    The one in the pic is the one I used to have/am talking about.

    Thanks for reading my post.
